Knitted Coffee Cozy Pattern quick and easy DIY, perfect for gifting. Free pattern and beginner friendly. Also suitable for tea

Little Twist Coffee Cup Cozy

Don’t get me wrong. I have nothing at all against tea, and these cozies will hug your mug no matter what you have decided to put in it.  Also, these are perhaps the perfect knitted gifts to make for your friends and family.  The cozy is worked in a rib pattern, which gives it the elasticity it needs to stretch over a cup without sagging, and the Little Twist I’ve added to it, adds a little more depth.

Skills Used


Alternatively, you can get all of these items at your local craft and/or dollar store – no yarn snobbery allowed here.

Little Twist = worked over two stitches. Slip the first stitch as if to knit, and then knit the next stitch.  Bring your left needle over to the stitch you slipped, and insert your left needle into that stitch, and pass it over the stitch you just knitted.  You’ll have a strand of yarn drawing a slightly twisted arch over the knitted stitch.  Knit that stitch that you just moved back over to the left needle. (Sl, K1, PSSO, K)


Slip 1


Knit the next stitch off the left hand needle


Using left needle, pick up the stitch previously slipped, and slip it over the stitch just knitted


and bring it back to the left needle


and proceed to knit it.


CO 36 sts

Row 1: *P2, K2, repeat from * across

Row 2: *P2, K2, repeat from * across

Row 3: *P2, Sl, K1, PSSO, K, repeat from * across

Row 4: *P2, K2, repeat from * across

Repeat rows 1 – 4, two more time

Bind off.

Cut yarn leaving about a 12” tail, and attach darning needle.

Secure the last stitch, and pur the cast on edge next to the bind off edge, and stitch closed the top 1/2 inch of the seam.

Weave the sewing yarn down through one side of the seam, leaving a nice little gap for the handle of your mug to fit through.


Stitch the remaining 1/2 “ of the seam.
